A film series and discussion forum dedicated to the science and practice of natural dyes and pigments using sustainable methods.
Michel will be teaching a 3-day intensive workshop for advanced dye practitioners in Tilburg, the Netherlands, at Zijdelings studio. To take a workshop directly with Michel is an opportunity not to be missed.
Aptly titled “Natural Dye workshop: An Intriguing Mix of Secrets and Chemistry,” students will learn to think differently – more inquisitively – about natural dyeing. Topics to be covered: how to set up quick natural indigo vats; quick resist patterns on blue ground using a special paste; alternative sustainable mordant processes; printing by silkscreen; polychromatic designs; and more.
